Share 30
2017-5-17 11:51
Strictly speaking, I am still a step away from turning 30. Here I just want to write down my feelings for the soon approaching 30. 30 in Chinese traditional culture is quite special which is shown in the Chinese saying that a man should be independent at the age of 30. In many people's mind, someone should have already achieved some important things in life at this age including having formed his/her family, having climbed to a certain level on the ladder of ca ...

Share Dangal
2017-5-15 10:55
The day I watched Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was when the movie 'Dangal' started being shown in the mainland of China. If I had known it was such a great movie, I would go to watch this instead. The Hollywood blockbuster is lame on many levels compared with this Indian movie. People on social networking websites started lavishing praise on this movie as soon as it was shown in cinemas. I finally got to watch this well-applauded movie today. I knew a bit of t ...

Share Lord of the Flies
2017-5-9 15:27
Lord of the Flies I noticed this must be a classic years ago as it was always on the recommending list of books sent to me by Amazon. But I never thought that I would get hold of it and finish reading it to know the mystery of the story. I decided to read it mainly because of the conversation I had with one of my students. She told me that her English teacher asked them to read this book and analyze the characters depicted in this novel and then write an essay about ...

Share The Sun is Also a Star
2017-5-9 15:25
The Sun is Also a Star This book was on the top 20 books in 2016 recommended by the editor of Amazon. According to the brief introduction in the post, this book is about a love story. Generally, love stories don't deserve that much applaud as even though love has always been considered an eternal topic, love is too universal to inspire or to enlighten people on different levels like some great books dealing with more serious topics do. I know normally this sort of b ...

Share What I didn't know
2017-4-27 17:27
In the past half year, quite a lot of emotional tumult has been witnessed in my life. For some time, I was even sightly depressed. One of my friends even suggested me to seek for professional advice. Nothing made me happy. I was utterly disappointed with myself and with my life. About two and half years ago when I was hunting for a job after securing my master degree, I wrote this blog about how harsh reality hit me in a totally unexpected way and in a way sort of dragged me ...

Share My Bike?
2017-3-19 10:17
My Bike? Last weekend, I was hanging out in the downtown with my friend and sister. We were walking at a public spare when all of a sudden a heated arguing between a student and a middle-aged woman arrested our attention. Out of curiosity, we all stopped to look around and found that they were arguing over an Ofo bike which recently got quite popular in this city along with two other bike-sharing companies including Mo-bike. From what we observ ...

7. Life teaches us a lot of lessons which I believe that we would be far better off with first hand experience regarding to those lessons rather than second hand one. This also perfectly explains why we cannot lead a decent life after being lectured by others all these years. Our parents always believe that we should follow their advice because they have been through the journey we are taking and because they are giving their hard-earned lessons to us so that we can ...

I wrote these about two years ago. I have been sorting them and decide to post some of them here. They are raw feelings and therefore can be very subjective. 1. If I were an unfinished song, would you be the lost part? If I wrote down the lyrics, would you compose the melody or vice verse? If I didn't tell you the underlying meaning of it, would you be able to figure it out yourself? If I hummed the song by moonlight shadow, would you hum it with m ...

Share Learn Chinese Well
2017-3-16 09:11
Learn Chinese well As a Chinese, I had never considered how difficult it could be to learn the language of Chinese. I just assume that I should be able to pick my mother tongue up pretty easily. But when I recall the process of learning Chinese, it was indeed a grueling as well as painstaking process to even just try to learn the basics of this language. I spent all six years in primary school learning the pinyin and the strokes of basic Chinese characters. At that ...

Share A Pet
2017-3-5 09:17
I watched “ A Dog ’ s Purpose ” this afternoon. It is not a particularly good movie. But it touche d me all the same. I had had a few pets when I was little, dogs and cats. Even though I grew up in an extended family and have a younger sister, I still treated my pets like my best friends. My parents were away a lot and I constantly had bickers with my sister and cousins, so it made sense for me to treat my pets like my best bu ...

    I have never read the book but I have seen a movie version when I was young and I watched some if a more recent adaptation recently. In my opinion International High Schools should be banned. You think Jack would be serving the public in peacetime or turning people into monsters in war do you? In my opinion International High School students are a bunch of Piggies that believe themselves to be what you think Jack is. A class of Piggies being nurtured to act as enemies of the publics of whatever nation they claim to be from. Piggy offspring of a class of piglets that have inherited the earth apparently. It seems that every regular contributor to this forum is some piglet that works against the people of earth for some secret class of international piglets. It seems that this forum is some kind of international piglet initiative. I think it would be a good thing if a boulder was dropped on every last one of you piglets. You are pretenders. You need to hide in the shadows because deep down you all know yourselves to be worthless piglets that do not deserve your places in this world. You piglets know that you need to hide yourselves and your evil intentions from the rest of us. None of you are Jack. You are all Piggy.

    Thank you for the compliment, my friend. I do not know how many books I have read but I do know that not a day passes with me not at least browsing in some. What is more important, though, is whether any of these books have left a permanent memory. Luckily I can say that some books have done so.
